dips and chest pain

  1. dips and chest pain


    does anyone else get a sharp pain in the chest from doing sets of dips? it hurts like a mofo, but i usually just push through it. it feels like a "deep" pain, like not the pectoral. anyone else?


  2. Closer to the sternum or shoulder?

    Thats normal, is it all the time or some times? It happens to me once in a while and I'll be able to "pop" my sternum.

  6. yeah it's not every single time, but it happens pretty often

  7. I should have mentioned that the pain can last a day or two after the work out. def a sharp pain in the sternum...like you move a certain way and all of the sudden, sharp pain.

    I've always just assumed this wasn't anything much to worry about as it goes away on its own.. just wanted to see what the deal is with it. thanks everyone.

  8. I've noticed this too. Only on weighted dips though. Really hurts like crap.

    Is it just dips period, or is form a part of it?

  9. We're talking about skeletal muscle here... Not uncommon for something like your sturnum to ache.. But its probably not the sternum but the muscle connecting to it

  10. For those with pain, do you do any decline work and, if so, about where does the BB/DB touch on the chest?

  11. I personally stopped doing decline bench. I've started again in the past week.
    The DB/BB goes to the nipple or a little lower.

    Your body may not be accustomed to the motion because the ROM is kinda short.

    Makes sense. In that case, I suppose it'll just be a matter of time until it is accustomed and the pain lessens/disappears?

  14. That used to happen to me at first when I initially started doing them. After a short while my body adapted to it and dips have since proven to be a very productive exercise for me.

    As long as the pain is bearable, and doesn't see injury prone, I say push through it and see where it takes you.

  15. is there any medicine in that problem?
